Solve posts some funny parameters when i solve a set of 6 simultaneous eqns.
eg.

x1 == 1.*(X - 1.*Bx*Cos(\[Psi]) + Bz*Cos(\[Psi])*Cot(B)*Sec(A) - 
        1.*UFly*Cos(A)*
          Sin(B) + (1.*Bz*m1*Cos(B)*Cos(\[Psi]))/(1.*Cos(A)*Cos(B) - 
              1.*m1*Cos(A)*Sin(B)) + (1.*Bx*Cos(A)*Cos(B)*
              Cos(\[Psi]))/(1.*Cos(A)*Cos(B) - 1.*m1*Cos(A)*Sin(B)) +
(1.*b1*
              Cos(A)*Sin(B))/(1.*Cos(A)*Cos(B) - 1.*m1*Cos(A)*Sin(B)) +
(1.*....

what does the 1. mean????? I also occasionally get a 0. 

many thanks,
Ryan H
